phrase books

mainstay Viennese restaurant '''menus''' offer a bewildering variety of terms for dishes, most of which the visitor will never have heard of and many of which aren't in the brief lists of menu terms included in phrase books. However restaurants that have any foreign patrons at all usually have an English menu, though you may have to ask for it: the phrase "English menu" usually will be understood even by wait staff who don't speak English.

in Munich. The Vienna accordion builder Matthäus Bauer was mentioned as one who showed instruments with piano keyboards, and one with a "3 row machine and accidentals", mentioned in combination with the piano accordion. It seems likely that it was unisonoric and chromatic. Matthäus Bauer then held a Vienna privilegium (Patent, 1851). Advertisements in newspapers of the time show pictures of various accordions, that were mostly diatonic, but also piano and 3-row B-Griff configurations. '''Joseph Rosen''' (Hebrew: יוסף רוזין, ''Yosef Rosin'') known as the '''Rogatchover Gaon''', ("Genius of Rogachev"), and also often referred to by the title of his main work '''Tzofnath Paneach''' ("Decipherer of Secrets"), (Rogachev, 1858 – Vienna, 5 March 1936), was a rabbi and one of the most prominent talmudic scholars of the early 20th-century, known as a genius (''gaon (Gaon (Hebrew))'') because of his photographic memory and ability to connect sources from the Talmud to seemingly unrelated situations. His worldly and undisciplined customs, and his sympathy with the Hanoverian party in Great Britain Albani was the representative of Maria Theresa in Rome, and as Austria's ally Great Britain had no official representation, Albani performed the welcome duties. —whereas Clement kept the Stuart pretender (James Francis Edward Stuart) as his perennial guest in Rome— exemplified by his friendship with Baron Philipp von Stosch, who shared many of Cardinal Albani's interests, and his correspondence with Sir Horace Mann (Sir Horace Mann, 1st Baronet), the British envoy at Florence, The Albani-Mann correspondence forms a large part of the documentation of Lesley Lewis, ''Connoisseurs and Secret Agents in Eighteenth-Century Rome'', 1961. caused Clement many occasions of concern. Named papal envoy, with his brother Cardinal Carlo (Carlo Albani), to Bologna to welcome King Frederick IV of Denmark, he was sent in 1720 to Vienna to uphold papal rights in the duchy of Parma and Piacenza, recently awarded to Charles de Bourbon, and to conclude the negotiations for the restitution of Comacchio, in the possession of Habsburg troops since 1707. thumb 280px A mid 18th century view of the Villa Albani by Giuseppe Vasi (Image:Villa Albani, Rome.jpg). thumb 320px Parliament building on Ringstraße (File:WienParlament.jpg) The '''Austrian Parliament Building''' ( Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna

He eventually was made deputy director, then in 1904 he was appointed to General Director of the company. Through his experience in the rubber and tire production field, Camillo saw the birth of aviation as an industry, going from a ballooning hobby, to makeshift glider craft requiring tires, to fully operational aircraft operated by engines.

For a while worked as a high school teacher in Bocholt, Germany, teaching physics and catechism. His real passion, however, was the mission.

He has also played with a range of Australian artists, including The Whitlams, Sarah Blasko, and Ash Grunwald. Mid-life From this time he worked hard at his ''Chronique'', with occasional interruptions in his retreat to fulfil missions in France or to visit the Burgundian court. He was assisted, from about 1463 onwards, by his disciple and continuator, Jean Molinet, whose rhetorical and redundant style may be fairly traced in some passages of the ''Chronique''. Charles the Bold (Charles, Duke of Burgundy) maintained the traditions of his house as a patron of literature, and showed special favor to Chastellain, who, after being constituted ''indiciaire'' or chronicler of the Order of the Golden Fleece, was himself made a knight of the order on 2 May 1473. He died at Valenciennes in 1475, on 13 February (according to the treasury accounts), or on 20 March (according to his epitaph). He left an illegitimate son, to whom was paid in 1524 one hundred and twenty livres (French livre) for a copy of the ''Chronique'' intended for Charles V (Charles V of France)'s sister Mary, queen of Hungary. Only about one third of the whole work, which extended from 1419 to 1474, is known to be in existence, but manuscripts carried by the Habsburgs to Vienna or Madrid may possibly yet be discovered. On his recovery and promotion to ''Feldzeugmeister'', Alvinczy advised the William VI of Orange (William I of the Netherlands) in the successful relief of Charleroi in June 1793, losing two horses under him in the process, and earning the reward of the Grand cross of the MTO.

personal bravery

in Vienna. Prince Charles Alexander of Lorraine, interesting himself in this strange man, obtained for him an amnesty and a commission in a corps of irregulars. In this command, besides his usual truculence and bad manners, he displayed conspicuous personal bravery, and in spite of the general dislike into which his vices brought him his services were so valuable that he was promoted to lieutenant-colonel (1743) and colonel (1744). When the War of the Austrian Succession broke out Trenck rallied volunteers and marched for Vienna to assist Maria Theresa of Austria. While in Vienna, Trenck's Pandurs marched the streets before invading Prussia. At the battle of Soor he and his irregulars plundered when they should have been fighting and Trenck was accused of having allowed the king of Prussia (Friedrich II of Prussia) himself to escape. After a time he was brought before a court-martial in Vienna, which convicted him of having sold and withdrawn commissions to his officers without the permission of the empress, having punished his men without heed of the military code, and having drawn pay and allowance for fictitious men. Much was allowed to an irregular officer in all these respects, but Trenck had far outrun the admitted limits, and above all his brutalities and robberies had made him detested throughout Austria and Silesia. A death sentence followed, but the composition of the court-martial and its proceedings were thought to have been such as from the first forbade a fair trial, and the sentence was commuted by the Empress into one of cashiering and imprisonment. The rest of his life was spent in mild captivity in the fortress of Spielberg (Špilberk Castle) (Špilberk in Czech) in Brno, where he died on October 4, 1749. In his last will he left the sum of 30000 Gulden to the small town of Marienburg which had been sacked, burned and razed to the ground by his troops. In the War of the Fifth Coalition he commanded the I Armee Korps. He supervised the II Armee Korps, which was also posted on the north bank of the Danube River. Cut off from Archduke Charles as the result of the Battle of Eckmühl, he retreated into Bohemia, but managed to rejoin the main army before the great battles near Vienna. He led the I Korps in the battles of Aspern-Essling (Battle of Aspern-Essling) and Wagram (Battle of Wagram). After the 1809 war, Bellegarde became a Feldmarschall. From 1809 to 1813 he was governor-general of Galicia (Galicia (Central Europe)), but was often called to preside over the meetings of the Aulic Council, especially in 1810 in connection with the reorganization of the Austrian army. birth_date Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna

P. Putnam's Sons, 1935) and in England under the title ''Women East and West: Impressions of a Sex Expert'' (London: William Heinemann Medical Books, 1935). The '''Piano Sonata in F major''' by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, K. (Köchel-Verzeichnis) 332 300k, was written at the same time as the ''Piano Sonata, K. 330 (Piano Sonata No. 10 (Mozart))'' and ''Piano Sonata, K. 331 (Piano Sonata No. 11 (Mozart))'' (''Alla turca''), Mozart numbering them as a set from one to three. They were once believed to have been written in the late 1770s in Paris, but it is now thought more likely that they date from 1783. Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
